Hey! Arnold is back - and he's about to go where no football-headed fourth grader has gone before! When his class wins a trip to San Lorenzo, the last known place his parents were seen, Arnold is excited to finally uncover exactly what happened to his mom and dad.
But the road to the truth proves to be more than he bargained for when pirates kidnap him and his friends. Even if they band together to escape their clutches, will the hazardous jungle and the mysterious Green-Eyed People get in the way of the long-awaited reunion he's dreamt of his whole life?
Three weeks ago Nickelodeon aired an animated reunion telefilm based off of the previous 1996-2004 TV series (and the 2002 theatrical film, of course). And since then, Nickelodeon and Paramount Home Media Distribution have announced that on February 13th
they will release a DVD of that new 90-minute telefilm, Hey Arnold! - The Jungle Movie
Running approximately 66 minutes when stripped of the commercial breaks, this is written and produced by the original series creator, Craig Bartlett. It features 19 voices from the original series, plus introduces new voices such as Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2, Raiders of the Lost Ark
) playing the villain "Lasombra."
